Project Overview

Winner Category 1B: New Construction – Major Facility

“At the forefront of this project was the strong relationship forged between educators and architects. The educators were very clear in expressing their needs and aspirations. The architects were attentive and responded to these needs with both imagination and thoughtfulness.

The project exemplified a thorough and very open planning process where community engagement and consultation were an integral part of the design process. A key design consideration was that the new learning environments needed to accommodate the current pedagogy and also allow for further development into the future. It also provided an identifiable hub for Year 7 and 8 students.

ClarkeHopkinsClarke incorporated a range of initiatives, including indirect natural south light, electronically controlled cross ventilation, internal thermal mass walls for passive thermal comfort, and visual and physical connections to the outside supporting connected indoor and outdoor learning.

The Mount Waverley Secondary College Junior Campus has been designed to support evolving pedagogies, to demonstrate the importance that the community places on education and provide a facility that the whole community can use.

Special congratulations to ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects and Mount Waverly Secondary College.”
